hmm... the only thing that comes to mind is to crease it before sewing. The pieces look like they curve into the seams instead of laying flat. So, if you folded the seam allowance sharply before sewing then sewed in the crease, it might lay flat at the seams once it's flipped. Not sure how this will work on your particular vinyl but it might be worth a try.

Well after making my 20th version of spikes (not kidding) I couldn't crease the fabric so I decided to try folding over the fabric so instead of sewing two layers it was like I was sewing four. Its hard to sew and my fingers hate me for discovering it but I found the seam to be very clean.  I just put double sided tape on the  edge fold it over to it sticks and sew through a four layered seam instead of two layered one.

Just wanted to let you guys know I found a solution and haven't given up!

I'm happy to hear that! If you're good with a thimble, that may help save your fingers.
